Yesterday we told you about the major upgrade to the 3.5 mile stretch of road between the Haulover Bridge and the Airport junction. That project is for 13.5 million dollars. But there is an even bigger project in the pipeline. Government has earmarked loan funds to push a road from 8 miles on the Western Highway to the Airport on the Northern Highway. This link road as it is called would give easier access to the international airport for those coming in from the west. At next Tuesday’s House Meeting, Government will bring a motion in the House to accept a loan of some $11.78 million US dollars from the OPEC Fund for International Development to build the road. The loan from OPEC will cover 87% of the total costs of the civil works component of the project. It is being called the Airport Link Road Project.

New Airport Link Road will help the flow of traffic to Belize City

The Government of Belize has accepted a loan from the Organization of Oil Exporting countries (OPEC) to pay for building the Airport Link Road.

The Airport Link is a new road which will branch off from the George Price ( Western Highway) and lead to the Philip Goldson International Airport. The road will need to span the Belize River way of a new bridge, and in the process will open up hundreds of acres of land for new housing.

This loan is coming from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Fund for International Development. It will cover 87 percent of the cost of the civil works involved, for the branch road and will significantly assist the Government with the planned rehabilitation and upgrading of the Philip Goldson Highway between Belize City and the Airport Road.

The new bypass will also take a lot of pressure off the Haulover Bridge by providing an alternative route in and out of Belize City.

The Caribbean Development Bank has already approved a loan of US $13,740,000, for the Haulover project at 3.95 % interest and the European Investment Bank has come up with US $12.5 million at 2.38 percent.

Upgrading the Philip Goldson Highway will include a new bridge at Haulover, safety improvements and climate adaption works.
